Well would you look at that. I was just lamenting the sorry state of Psychedelic Horseshit appreciation, honestly pretty upset that their Acid Tape from last year came and went with zero press or fanfare, thinking it might be closer to the end than the beginning for our Wavves-vanquishing heroes from Columbus, when BOOM, dudes rise like a jheri-curled phoenix and sign to FatCat! That’s a serious label! Sure, they’ve had stints on Siltbreeze, Woodsist, and Columbus Discount, but being on FatCat means my teenage doppelgänger might (and based on their name, would) pick up their new album on his next trip to Borders (…eh…), throw it on and laugh at the unintelligible nonsense, then keep playing it til he realizes the sounds go deeper than even his favorite Chris Carrabba song.
So yeah, Psychedelic Horseshit have a new record called Laced all set to go that, as of May 10, will be rubbing shoulders with the primest of prime cuts from bands like Animal Collective, Black Dice, and Sigur Rós. Wow! And they did it without even one 7-inch on Green Label Sound. According to the most reliable of sources (the press release), Laced dials down the abrasiveness of Magic Flowers Droned a notch or two and steps up the sonics, with “swathes of blissfully reverberant FX, buried voices, smeared electronics, and melted-out guitar processing complement[ing] moments of blissed-out frequency mess.” Interested parties (of one) can download a non-album bonus cut by signing up for the band’s newsletter here, though I really wish you guys could hear that Acid Tape that came out last year on Fan Death. That tape was sick.
What’s that? They’re offering said tape up for FREE as a high-quality download with album art right here, no strings attached?! Damn, Horseshit… you done let the dogs out again.

No tourdates announced yet, but there is talk of a show next weekend at Carabar in Columbus featuring the original lineup of the band. I’d go, but I have a meeting with the people at Green Label Sound.
